Scott Weinberg
Apollo Guide

Movies that just create silly fads are destined to linger long after their gimmicks have become jokes.

Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)

Flashy and silly; tries to be a country-Western "Saturday Night Fever," but misses the mark.

| Original Score: 2/5

At their prime, John Travolta and Debra Winger make for a very sexy married couple in this James Bridges' musical drama, which launched the country and Western fad in music and film.
